Wanna Dance With Somebody!
Or, A Guide to Managing Social Anxiety Using Theoretical Physics

Josh is good at dancing, but not at people.
On the other hand he did once read ‘A Brief History of Time’ by Stephen Hawking
So he reckons he’ll probably be alright.

Is the hokey cokey really what it’s all about?

Josh doesn’t know, but he’s damn well going to find out.

A new show about social anxiety, about coping mechanisms –
